On Monday, Vice President Leni Robredo reacted in marking the centennial birth anniversary of Ferdinand Marcos Sr. as a holiday.
She said that it was “inappropriate to declare it as a holiday due to the abuses he committed during his leadership.
“Parang kinakalimutan natin iyong lahat na kasalanan na nagawa sa taumbayan, Parang nire-revise iyong kuwento, nire-revise iyong kasaysayan, na hindi naman dapat.” Robredo said.
She also added that the Marcos family should not inflict the holiday to public.
“Kung pamilya kayo, okay lang naman na i-celebrate niyo sa paggunita ng araw ng inyong namatay. Pero kapag sinasabi mo na kailangan ipagbunyi ito—iyong buhay niya, kailangang ipagbunyi ng ating bansa—iyon iyong mali.”
She even reiterated that Marcos kin must “come clean to the public” if they are sincere in want to return some of the alleged ill-gotten wealth.
“Kasi iyong kasalanan sa bansa, hindi pa iyon napapawi, lalung-lalo na kasi iyong mga ninakaw sa ating bayan ay hindi pa nababalik. Hindi naman kanila iyon. Pera iyon ng taumbayan,” she said.
It was on Thursday, Sept 7, when President Duterte agreed to released the Marcoses’ request to declare the Sept 11 as a special non-working holiday for the Ilocanos.
It was under the Proclamation No. 310, signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea.

Stating “The Ilocano community has been annually celebrating the birthdate of the late Ferdinand E. Marcos, and commemorating his life and contributions to national development as a World War II veteran, distinguished legislator, and former president”
“It is but fitting and proper that the people of the Province of Ilocos Norte be given the full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies”
The celebration was held at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in Taguig City.
